On January 16, 2013, we will be beginning Stage One of Training for the Pastoral Plan: Stage One training is for the Pastoral Center.That's right. Appropriately, the people at the Chancery are going to lead the way out of the mess they created.
In it we will learn some of the same leadership, management, and evangelization skills that will be taught in the collaboratives in their very extensive training program. We will learn the same vocabulary, the same structures, and the same vision that they will learn. Appropriately, we will lead the way in the training effort.
TTC has obtained a copy of the wizards' handbook and is pleased to give readers a sneak-peak at the vocabulary index:
Soper's Suckers: Parishes volunteering to be the first to execute the plans.
Cluster Fugatz: Fights between parishioners over who gets fired and what gets closed.
PWPAPs: Priests without parishes and pensions.
CWSACs: Catholics without Sacraments and Catechisms.
FEUTCWAPs: Fired Employees Up The Creek Without a Paddle. (Employees working for the Archdiocese for decades who are not eligible for unemployment)
MPME: Motu Proprio My Eye
SDYALD: The Sisters of Divine Yoga and Liturgical Dance
JCSOSCS: Jack Connors School of Schismatic Chancery Structures
ABSTGOOD: Auxiliary Bishops Scrambling to get out of Dodge.
The truth of the matter is, the plan isn't about getting people into a state of sanctifying grace and keeping them there.
They have a long way to fall.
